Climate change is becoming an increasingly important topic in our daily lives. When it comes to meeting climate targets, each individual is called on to an equal extent. Therefore, it is particularly important for us to ensure that our actions are sustainable. We do this with a variety of projects. Here, for example, our work is already performed with a CO2-neutral balance, and we generate our own “green” electricity with photovoltaic systems on our buildings’ roofs. Yet, what else can we do to act more sustainably?
The answer is simple!
Our employees have had access to the electrically-powered BMW i3 for business trips since 28th March 2019.
The BMW i3 has a 170 hp engine, which is powered by a 94 amp-hour battery. It has a range of about 200 kilometres. This makes the nippy little car perfect for shorter trips to our customers.
Electric cars don’t have any transmission, which means they have no conventional gears. Thus, driving them is pleasant and easy as child’s play. Simply charge the battery, and you’re ready to go. And the icing on top: the BMW is hardly audible.
We can easily charge the e-car using our own green electricity. At a mileage of 200,000 km, an electric car charged with green electricity emits hardly any CO2. By contrast, an engine running on petrol weighs 32.48 tons. This means we save nearly 100% of CO2 emissions. What is more, the e-car is also really gentle on your wallet. On average, driving 100 km only costs €3.50.
We at Halfar are already very excited about our new colleague, because with it, we are able to act even more sustainably. This promise is also found in our products. If you would like to find out more about our sustainable products, take a look at related articles in our blog!
